Hamstring tendinopathy and rehabilitation

There are various treatments for PHT, but it is unclear which one has the best long term outcome

Proximal hamstring tendinopathy (PHT) is most common in athletes who have to perform at the end range of motion of the hip  in the sagittal plane or in sports such as football, in which a change of direction is often required. PHT can be recognized by a deep pain near the ischial tuberosity, often exacerbating after sports activities. The pain can commonly be provoked through combined hip flexion and adduction. It is thought that tendon pathologies have their onset in training errors, such as increasing exercise intensity or frequency too quick.
